I've downloaded to programs to get in to torrents, I've downloaded a show, I've translated it into WAV and the stupid thing won't play in the car!

It won't play on the home sterio either, though the discs I got from tigerbolt will. AARRGGHH!! HELP!

I'm stuck.

Buy the Application "Nero 6" that can convert wave to music CD and also eliminate the 2sec gap between tracks (your next problem-i suspect)

This free Application >> http://www.musicmatch.com/download/free/?OS=pc&MODE=input&DID=&OEM=YMJ&LANG=ENU&SOURCE=CJJ
will also convert wave to music CD, eliminate gap... you need to tweak the Recorder & Burner "Tools" and "Settings" tabs to get everything exactly perfect. It takes a little poking around.
Nero 6 is the easiest though. You get what you pay for.

Don't know if this has been mentioned, but some cd players won't recognize cdr's. That could be why your home stereo will play tiger's discs and your car stereo won't.

That doesn't explain the discs you burned, but I think that explanation is in one of these answers.

Thanks all, I am turning it into audio CD, but I will try your other suggestions.

I agree with Rasta. Nero has worked the best for me.

Its possible that if it was with an mp3 player, its converting the wav files to mp3 files so that player can read/play it. Some car, home and portable cd players don't read mp3 files. Not to get personal, but is your car or home player 5 years or older? If so, try the cds you burned in someone else's car. I put a new $100 cd player in my old 88 Volvo that my daughter drives that clearly promoted itself as being able to read mp3 files. Also, when I bought my first external burner, my current computer was to old and slow to run it, and I had to upgrade to windows xp at the time. Just a heads up before you start purchasing new equipment.

Yeah, I knew about the old thing and, yes, they are older, but I still don't get that tigerbolt's will play on the sterio in the living room (though not in the car)

yours might be mp3 files, and his may not be. Do your cds play on a new player-auto or home?

Another possible problem is that some older players don't recognize mp3's if you downloaded from places like speeding arrow. You did mention that you coverted to wav, so that should be ok. Probably the data instead of audio file. I tried so many ways the get these to work when I first started-don't give up now. You are one step away. Keep us posted.

Be sure to buy the NERO 6.6 Reloaded retail box if you have XP with service pack 2. EBAY is a good place to find this discontinued software. Best to avoid some of the retailers selling a stripped down OEM CD in a paper envelope; because it doesn't have the special features mentioned in other posts.

NERO.com is trying to sell their new version 7; so you can't get it from them any more. The new version has a lot of programs that many people don't need or use. It is too much for a beginner to play with and full of bugs.

There is always the warez sites (oldversion.com) and the P2P services as a last resort. Finding a key generator isn't hard either...

Yeah, I looked for Nero at staples and it's
$90, too rich for my blood. I think my Mom has Nero something or other. ...off to spend more time...

rastamom-haha! although some call me a mutha....
So try the free Musicmatch, it comes in 3 parts, the player, recorder & burner. Not that hard to set up.
I could walk you thru it by phone if needed. The Burner set up is the one you'd be using most and you can drag the wave files into the burner window.
No cheap Nero 6 Express out there? Last time I looked, it was $40-$50.
If you use Windows2000XP, did'nt it come with Sonic's >> http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/fastFaqLiteDocument?lc=de&cc=de&dlc=&docname=c00099748
?? LOTS of Windows2000XP (HP?)came with the above application that also is easy to work and tweak.
The major downside of the free Musicmatch is that it's slower than the Sonic or Nero.
The Gateway PC I use came with Nero 6. Good luck!

Thanks for the advice, My machine is sort of...let's see...inherited...so sometimes I'm not sure what it has on it.

And your HP site is in German, hard to read. I'll figure it out when I get home tonite

When you are burning them with your computer, what option are you selecting. Are you burning a data disc, or an audio disc?

Yeah MM, you need to burn it as an "audio disc" so it will be in CDA format in order to play on Stereo Systems. They don't play WAV files! Crazy, I know. I have to do the same thing.

Once you've converted the SHN or FLAC to WAV, then, you have to convert the WAV to CDA. Nuts. Your CD burning software will give you the option of burning a data cd or an audio or "music" cd.

Hope it helps.
